Quick Inspiration for Cinco De Mayo!

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, and that’s a perfect excuse to throw together a fun, weekday party. Who can say no to endless chips, salsa and margaritas? Have no idea what to do for tomorrow? Here are a few inspiration boards to help get your brain kicking. Throw together some decorations with bright colored tissue and use all of the bright colors you have in your home to make a great last-minute Cinco De Mayo celebration.

Sources:  Tissue decorations via Martha; Decorations used in a summer celebration featured on Design Sponge ; Bright colored maxi-dresses are perfect for a fiesta; a tasty treat featured in Martha Stewart’s now defunct magazine Blue Print; Margarita Cupcakes are a nice break from traditional foods from a fiesta; bright plates and tablecloths from Anthropologie makes me just want to have a party

As I’ve said before, Martha is the Queen of All Good Things… but, did you know that she is also the go to person for a GREAT drink recipe? Just check out these recipes for Margaritas!

If you just want a little taste of Mexico this Cinco De Mayo, please try “The Best Tecate Ever”. My favorite Mexican food restaurant serves something very similar to this tasty concoction.
First, frost up a glass in the freezer– it needs to be VERY frosted. Second, use half a lime to rim the glasses and squeeze the rest of the juice into the glass. Just drop the half into the glass. Next, fill the frosted mug with Tecate and drink it in!
